ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.

Hey guys, my ASUS eeePC 900 keeps rebooting during the windows load screen. I don’t know what it could be and I don’t have a CD drive for the windows disk (windows XP). Any help would be grateful. Also is there any way I could create a ''boot disk'' using a SD-card? THANKS! =)

You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

ASUS EeePc 1015PEM reboots at windows startup. even with new hdd and fresh install. ok when in bios screen or if i boot into linyx


Which windows OS are you using? windows xp, 7 or 8?
Anyway the problem might be corrupted installation CD. If you install windows on other computer using this CD, so if CD is OK, then
start your laptop and press F8 repeatedly until Windows Advanced Boot Options appears. Then choose automatic restart on system failure. This option will allow you to see Blue Screen Of Death and to understand what causes a problem.

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM
Select “r” at the first screen to repair

So then i click r at the first screen and nothing happens...It keeps on repeating to repair on and on with the same message after i clicked r. I can't even access to the window...what can i do???

I want to reboot my asus eee pc 900 and i dont have the disc. i was wondering if i could download the reboot somewhere and use a usb to reboot it.


Yes you can - I a m not sure where you can get the original OS for that model, however installing an OS on that model using a bootable USB is possible. Use this link to find instructions on how to for Windows OS's -
http://www.serbanghita.com/install-windows-xp-on-asus-eeepc.html
If I am not mistaken, the original OS on the Asus is a Linux OS which I think will require you to use a program called unetbootin to make the bootable USB. Use this link for unetbootin http://unetbootin.net/
You can also perform the same task using an external hard drive.
Hope this answers your question and helps FixYa! let me know if you have any other questions? Meanwhile, share the love and leave me some feedback!

I have an asus eeepc 900. i have an error message


hi charmed4031this netbook comes with an internal harddisk on which windows is installed but lacks any optical drives so far.
You will have to get an external CD/DVD-drive plus a Windows-CD for it from which you safely can reinstall windows or replace the missing file. Please find out which windows version you are using(Win200, Win XP Home for e.g.,), lend or buy this external drive, connect devices and let the computer work it's magic, if still facing diffifculties, you know where to find us ;-)

There is a Win XP recovery disc for the unit. You could call Asus and request the XP Recovery CD or you could try checking torrents, newsgroups, etc. for "eeepc xp recoverydisc"

I have an asus eeepc and the windows startup window keeps going over and over without going to the desk top


boot loops usually indicate 1 of 2 thinks
- a corrupt or damage operation system
or
-a bad hard drive

unfortunately, i know these netbooks don't have a disc drive, but if you have access to an external one, see if you can get your hands on a hardware testing program like drive fitness test. if that passes, you know your operating system needs to be reinstalled.

My asus eee pc may have a virus


Are you on Linux or Windows XP? Given that Linux is nowhere near as bad as XP for viruses, I'll assume XP.

If on Windows, keep pressing F8 on Post (machine Switch on).
From the menu of options, select 'Safe Mode' - this is a mode that deactivates all start up programs and drivers.

From within here run a virus AND spyware scan.

You can get free Anti-virus from www.MajorGeeks.com
Use AVG Free Adition or Aviva (aka Antivir)

For Spyware, use Spybot

You will probably need to download on another computer.

It is very easy to change to XP windows.

Note: exchanging the unit for bogus reasons
(saying it crashes, when it doesn't) is bad
for your karma! Try the exchange in an honest
manner.

1. Read the instructions for converting to XP, in your manual or go to the ASUS website for instructiions.

2. The required windows drivers are on one
of the support discs that came with the eeepc.
(why would they include these, if the unit wasn't
meant to be converted to win XP?)

3. Or download the drivers from the ASUS website.

4. You must supply your copy of windows XP for this.

5. for easy step-by-step directions go to eeeuser.com

6. prepare to spend about 4-6 hours on this - not quick.
